I like the aqua; it looks so refreshing!

I’m on the aqua band wagon as well.  I tried to bring in some blush elements (especially with my flowers) and it’s been a bit of a challenge… Go aqua!

I’m actually doing shimmery aqua, pink/blush/cameo and black for accent!  It can be done but it helps that the BM’s are doing the LBD and with the black for accent (here it could be the kraft color) it ties in pretty good..I’ve already looked at flowers with one florist I know and they’re going to go pretty darned well!

For picking between the two for our friend Alieliza, I would do a light shimmery aqua if there has to be only one color.

I still vote for both b/c I know it can be done!

Haha.  Your board is awesome.  I love that you’re still torn.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I was hoping you’d post again with new info and new pics.  ๐Ÿ™‚

We are doing charcoal grey and blush.  It’s been great.  The flowers were a no-brainer.  All the pearl jewelry with hints of pinkish peach?  Awesome.  We are having one Flower Girl, and she gets to wear a pink dress!  So she’s happy!  And, having the grey has really helped to keep everything grounded.  Like, our invites are grey ink on off-white paper.  No blush there.  My dress is silk – the color is "natural".  The guys are wearing black tuxes with grey vests/ties.  (I couldn’t make them wear pink!)   So the pink is really only coming out in the smallest places.  I really am loving our color scheme.  Like pp said, the blush would be really hard to "match" if we were using it in larger doses.  We are using the FG’s dress to define "blush" and giving swatches of it to the florist, the cake baker (yes, we’re having a pink cake), etc.  

That being said, I am totally lusting after the aqua color.  I think it looks SO GOOD with gold pieces, which would totally work with your kraft (for the places where you want a little extra formality).   If I could change my color scheme today, it would include this color.  I am thinking I will have it be the color scheme for our rehearsal dinner.  Oh, rehearsal dinners don’t have color schemes?  HAha, I know.  I just REALLY want to use this color!!!!!

Here are some pics I copied from Snippet and Ink:

 

Also, here is a wedding they featured.  Gorgeous!

Sorry to take up so much space.  ๐Ÿ™‚
